With everything moving to the cloud,
does it make sense to deploy an onsite solution?

It certainly does! It all depends on your business, and how you choose to manage your technology. For example, if you have plenty of IT resource familiar with managing and maintaining a communications system, then you may very well want to keep your phone system in-house in order to maintain control. Depending on the type of business, you may even be required to maintain your communications platform in house for security or privacy reasons, so an onsite phone system might be appropriate. Other companies simply feel more comfortable knowing that they are in control of all maintenance, management, and upgrades – which is another reason why ShoreTel designs their phone systems for ease of use and flexibility.

Examine the total cost of ownership
Maintaining control with an on-premise phone system might seem like a good idea, but it’s crucial to understand all aspects of the systems you are evaluating. You may find a solution that offers everything you need and a few things you don’t, but if it requires massive amounts of time and effort in training and maintenance, then you are picking up added expenses where you don’t need them.

When you choose ShoreTel Connect, you get true scalability, with a flexible system that gives users the power to leverage the tools they want to use, when they need them.
